Abstract

First generation library tutorials were modeled on traditional classroom instruction which provides a broad, one-time overview. To better reach users at the point of need, Colorado State University developed a set of second generation tutorials. These tutorials instruct a range of audiences from pre-college students through faculty and cover both lifelong learning research skills, as well as how to use current tools. These tutorials will include auto-graded quiz components. Instructors will be able to incorporate single tutorials into WebCT courses or their own Web pages. These tutorials may be used as a model for other libraries and can be adapted through an open source agreement. Tutorials may be accessed at: http://lib.colostate.edu/tutorials/. This paper will discuss the development of these tutorials, their initial evaluation, and implementation challenges.
